Lauren and Justin Shelton have suffered from obesity all their lives. When they got married in 2008 Justin weighted about 450 lbs. while Lauren weighted a little over 300 lbs . The married couple was really overweight despite being in their 20s. In early 2012 Justin suffered a bad kidney infection and had to be taken to the hospital but it was impossible for him to be treated properly due to him being overweight. On the very next day Justin told his wife that he would change his life no matter what and Lauren agreed to join him on his journey to health.
They contacted a specialist who advised them to quit drinking sodas and all kinds of sugary drinks and drink only water. The dietary expert also said they should forget about fast food and stick to a healthy diet of fresh fruit and vegetables. The couple took the expert advise really seriously and also included lots of physical activity and exercise in their daily routine.
Just a year and a half later Lauren and Justin look nothing like they used to! The couple has managed to lose a tremendous 520 lbs. combined weight through healthy eating and exercising. Lauren shared she has been tempted from time to time to indulge in a dessert or something forbidden but, all in all, she remained focus and didn’t let herself forget what their mutual goal was : to lose weight and get healthy again.
Today Lauren and Justin not only look amazing but also want to share their experience with other people who have been through the same. You can check more about the Sheltons new way of living on Their Blog.
